What to expect at Cheltenham Festival

Crowd levels on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of the Festival are kept to around 55,000, compared with a capacity of 65,000 on Friday for the Gold Cup

Of the Festival’s daily audience, a quarter come from Gloucestershire and the surrounding area and another quarter from London and the Home Counties. Of the rest, up to 10,000 come from Ireland, and invaders from the Emerald Isle proceed to take over much of the Cotswolds countryside and its hostelries. 

Whatever the weather, spring arrives in Gloucestershire on the first Tuesday of the Festival. Helicopters clatter in over Cleeve Hill, the first of 200,000 pints of Guinness are sunk and spectators roar off the start of the first race at the Cheltenham Festival. That now traditional roar is an outpouring of a range of emotions from the relief of the racing community that Cheltenham has finally come round again, to the exhilaration of the crowd at the thought of what lies ahead - four days of high drama, effort and excess that will test both wallets and livers.

Whilst many will be enjoying the best flat racing has to offer during the summer and early autumn months, fans of National Hunt racing will be eagerly awaiting the start of the new season and the momentous day when tickets to the Cheltenham Festival finally go on sale.

All the greatest names in the history of the sport have sought fame and fortune at the Cheltenham Festival and you cannot be considered the best in the business until you have tasted success on the famous Prestbury Park turf.
